Rosso Corsa  

A high performance tyre on the road and perfect for on-track sessions.
Profile and structure make it a reference point in the segment thanks to the excellent support ensured in inclination and rapid realignment coming out of bends.

Made with the most modern EPT design technologies developed in the WSBK, and thanks to multi-compound composition with three zones at the rear capable of optimising the area of contact, ensures the maximum grip on road and racetrack.

Maximum performance on the racetrack and great reactivity on the road for incredible control of the bike in all situations.

A tread with an aggressive pattern in line with the Rosso style.

Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tyres

By Mark Holmes -

Miles covered/time: 3500/four months


What’s good: I had these tyres fitted to my long-term test KTM Duke 690 R this summer and absolutely loved them. I’m always dubious of claims like ‘the only hypersport tyre for road and track use with WSB technology’ and acronyms like EPT (Enhanced Patch Technology) but these finely-crafted beauties have the performance to cut through the bullshit.
Right from the first fitting – well, after the first few tenuous roundabouts and a few miles of scrubbing-in – they felt so right it was a revelation. They heat up quickly, building up your confidence rapidly, and the stand-out sensation is how seamlessly, smoothly and progressively they allow you to peel the bike into and out of corners.
And that WSB-derived compound on the shoulders of the tyres makes for amazing levels of grip as you progress from tipped over to upright while powering out of the bends. It’s a deeply satisfying feeling that, as I write this in deepest winter, I yearn to feel again. For summer blasts, they’re a ball. 

What’s not: The Duke went through two sets of these through a long summer season of riding, getting 3500 miles out of the longest-lasting pair. But the power pulses of this big single eat up rear tyres more rapidly than many other bikes and I’ve heard of a set lasting 5000 miles on a colleague’s four-cylinder supersport bike.
So although the compound in the centre line of these multi-compound jobs is harder-wearing than a pure sports tyre, longevity is a good way away from touring-spec rubber. Towards the end of their lifespan, they’re not 100% confidence-inspiring in the wet, either.
